Itching to vote? Early voting has begun

Itching to vote? Early voting has begun

To see how these differences could be impacting the voting process, researchers assembled election laws in what they called a "Cost of Voting Index" in order to rank each state according to the ease and time it takes to cast a ballot in each presidential election between 1996 and 2016. Party or name changes can not be processed during early voting or election day.

MS was the most hard place to cast a ballot, followed by Virginia, Tennessee, Indiana, and Texas.

We hear a lot about "early voting" these days, but what exactly is it? A total of 136,982 people have either voted in person or mailed in ballots in Dallas County.

A county in Arkansas temporarily closed all of its early voting locations after the Democratic Party's nominee for secretary of state was left off the ballot by the GOP-dominated county election commission. "Most of the time it was extending down the hallway".

The state's largest counties all had much larger first-day turnout than they did in the previous midterm elections two years ago. The big question, will a record number of registered voters translate into an equally high turnout?

For the 1st District race, voters should rank incumbent Democrat Chellie Pingree, Republican Mark Holbrook and independent Marty Grohman.

The best way to vote is to first get informed on all of the local and statewide races and ballot initiatives.

"I'm pleased with Trump and I like Ted Cruz", Alvin said.

People who want to know the details on how to discharge their civic duty early can go to to find out polling place locations and schedules for their communities, she said.

Advocates say that the expanded hours make participation more accessible and convenient for people with inflexible work schedules or difficulty making it to their polling place, though the actual data on whether early voting alone increases overall turnout is less conclusive. "While we can still get it right, we stood up to be counted and we did".

Early voting for the 2018 General Election will start Thursday, October 25th and continue through Thursday, November 1st. Republican Senate candidate Corey Stewart sent out an email on Wednesday to supporters urging them to use the absentee vote to help "BEAT TIM KAINE!"; Senator Kaine's staff say they've also pushed the option to supporters via campaign literature, emails, and texts. O'Rourke briefly ducked into the tent and spoke with the supporters.
